Thread: Taranis question
23/04/2017 19:43:37

I have been trying to find out how to set the throttle cut on an ic engine using the Taranis tx. Does anyone know how? There's plenty of info on electric.

The footprint size with extension to its max is 12 3/4 x 20 1/2, so you will need to add the over hang to these measurements. Hope this helps.

I brought a Parkside drill from Lidil. They are cheaper than brand makes and only have one battery, but I have had mine for 3yrs and it's still going strong.

I have used it for all sorts of DIY as well as modelling.

Thread: Wiggo
18/09/2015 14:45:46

I was surprised about the Cog, even though it's not quiet finished, the rx battery will need to be in the hatch. I did build the frame a bit heavier. Should be an interesting maiden!

25 SC two stroke. Used this one as it was lying around and looked about the right size. Had to modify the fire wall to get the exhaust to fit.

Thought I would have a go at converting the Wiggo to an IC version! Still not quite finished it yet!

Thread: Wot no ARTF kits?
24/06/2015 21:20:17

Why is it that most of the modelshops I have checked on line, don't seem to have hardley any ARTF kits for IC? They are either out of stock or on back order!

Saw this plane at the Hobby king show last year, very nice. Put it on my must have list smiley

Thread: Flaps
01/10/2014 21:10:22

Yes it was habit and a case of I've always done it that way, then it became a challenge to set it up with a Y lead. The only advantage, is it's. One less lead to un plug!

I do agree that if you have spare channels then why not use them.

Thanks for all the advice.

I stripped everything out, measured it all twice and refitted the servo's, horns and linkage. Have measured both the flaps and they both measure the same, using a Y lead. There must have been something slightly out, the first time I set the flaps up!

I am having trouble setting the flaps on my Hanger 9 P-47.

I am using Futaba 3003 servos, the servo horns are the same length and the link rod is the same length. I am using a Y lead, so when I set up one of the flaps, I thought that the other would move the same distance, but wrong. It is 6mm out. I've tried adjusting the length of the rod, but made no difference! They both start in the same position. I have run out of ideas!

I have an Irvine 53 in mine and still had to add a bit of lead.
15/08/2014 20:14:14
I'll see if I have still got the instructions. Won't be able to look until tomorrow as working nights!

Hi. Just measured mine from the leading edge. It measured 75mm

Thread: Erm...... second low winger

Hi, what about a seagull PC9? Under £100 and a great plane to fly. This was my first low winger. Colour scheme stands out well.

Thread: RCGF 15cc
09/07/2013 10:22:15

Hi. I have just treated myself to a 15cc Evolution petrol engine, very nice it is. It says in the manual that the CDI unit can run on a 2s lipo. Is there a minimum amp for the battery? Or would it depend on what you can fit into the air frame?
